LIVE 8 doesn't save plugin and synth settings..

LIVE 8 SUITE doesn't save plugin and synth settings..

Every time I open a saved project, all my settings are lost. All synths are reset to default. All fx plugs are also at the default position. This means that hours of tweaking are always lost. It doesn't matter which plugin I use. besides midi patterns, everything else is reset. How do I get LIVE to save EVERYTHING when I save a project??


These are 3rd party plugins. I can't ever remember using the built in ones :)

    Try using the "Collect all and Save " option in the file menu when you are going to save. Also, not all 3rd party VST plug-ins allow you to save preset info especially if they are free or demo versions.

    Or try saving one device at a time to see if there is a pattern to which ones are problematic.

    It doesn't happen in logic.. Only in LIVE.

    Synths affected are PREDATOR and VANGUARD. I use these a lot and it drives me nuts. They are not demos...

    The best way to solve this is to contact Ableton technical support directly, at
